Betty you fought a battle that most would not have been able to fight. It is time for you to rest and be reunited with Harold. You have left an amazing legacy in your sons, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We will miss you smile and positive attitude to life. Dinner at Red Lobster will not be the same. Miss you and love you.
